Best Fashion Guide: What is Plus Size Petite?
By Catalogs Editorial Staff
Petite sizes can be found in fashionable plus-size styles.Ever heard about plus size petite? Those of us who carry some extra pounds live in a good time for full-figure fashions. The styles available to us now go far beyond the housedresses and muumuus of the fifties. We can dress in stylish clothes that are as fashion-conscious as those that our svelte counterparts are wearing.
How to ShopThere is one segment of the plus-sized world that can be difficult to shop for. It is the plus size petite.
For some reason, fashion designers often assume that women who take a size 14 and above are also very tall and leggy. I know from experience that this is not the case.
Some of us are short and round, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want cute jeans, well-fitted trousers, and skirts that don’t drag on the floor.

You can usually use your height as a guidelineIf you’re 5 foot 4 inches or shorter, you will want to look for this clothing, or you will be forced to hem your pants, trousers, and skirts after you purchase them.
I am 5 foot 5 inches, and I can’t simply purchase regular plus size pants or plus size petite, because the lengths vary greatly among designers and brands. I have to take each pair of pants on an individual basis, always going with one that may be a little too long off the rack, but will probably shrink up in the washing machine.
Also, don’t forget about undergarments. Chances are most plus-size petite women are wearing the wrong size bra. Find the bra fit for you by shopping clothing stores that specialize specifically in plus-size undergarments.
